Very little resembles the plot of the books. For the first film, much of the core plot from the first book does remain, however major changes were made to some plot points and characters or some of them were removed entirely. The second film, ''The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement'' is in fact an entirely new creation: the only plot point from the books being used was Mia's mother marrying her teacher and having a baby with him. However, these movies gave the world Anne Hathaway, for which the world will be forever grateful (and ChrisPine, for which women everywhere will be forever grateful), and are popular sleepover fare with preteen (and not so preteen) girls to this day. A 2-movie collection, containing both films, is released on Blu-ray Disc on May 15, 2012.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Mia in the book isn't quite attractive as Anne Hathaway is after {{the makeover}}. The later books make clear Mia is BeautifulAllAlong.

* AwkwardKiss: Mia wants her first kiss to be an epic moment where her foot pops up like in old movies. Unfortunately, her foot gets stuck in fishing net on the floor of the shack they were hiding in, and she was with a RomanticFalseLead. She gets her epic kiss once she realizes the right guy is her [[ChildhoodFriendRomance old friend]].

** Mia and Andrew as well. The two got along really well, and Mia expected him to be her perfect match to secure the throne of Genovia. Later, they fall for other people, and they (quite happily) called off the wedding.



* {{Bowdlerise}}: In the books, Mia was a child born out of wedlock to two college grads with BelligerentSexualTension, and she becomes the heir by default when testicular cancer makes him sterile. In the movies, her parents are divorced, with Helen [[SpecificallySuspiciousDenial denying that Grandmere made the divorce happen]].

** A subtle one, also somewhat related to the beach party debacle. Right before Mia mentions the FootPopping, her mother calls Josh a "[[BackstreetBoys Backstreet Boy]] lookalike". Later, when Mia shows up at school the day after the scandal, "What Makes You Different" by the Backstreet Boys is playing in the background.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Jeremiah is nowhere to be found in the second movie. It's possible Lilly lost touch with him at some point inbetween the two installments.
